Attention: German Beer Experts!

What does 'kolsch' mean? The context is 'German Style Kolsch Bier'. Thank you.

Koelsch is THE beer of the city of Cologne (Koeln). It is a top-fermented, hoppy lager with a lighter taste than a Pilsner.

It's an excellent warm-weather beer because of its lighter taste. A local microbrewery (Schlafly Beer in St. Louis, MO) produces a Koelsch from Memorial Day to Labor Day for summertime quaffing.

It's also preferred by German women because of the lighter taste. Koelsch isn't a light beer but it has a lighter taste compared to Altbier and the darker beers. Though women are more inclined to drink Koelsch, I enjoy it in the summer because of the zippy, yet milder taste, especially in the high-humidity tank that is the St. Louis area.

Father DMJ gave a good intro to K├Âlsch (Koelsch) Bier. You can find more at this page from the German Beer Guide.
